BSCRA Annual Subscriptions
Membership of the Association is available to anyone who lives or runs a business in the
BSCRA area and who pays an annual subscription fee. For your subscription, you get access to the Association's Committee members, who are very experienced in handling a wide range of local issues, our e-Bulletin service (delivered by email typically 12-15 times per year) updating you regularly on local issues, our website and, periodically, printed Newsletters dropped through your door. We also run well attended meetings during the year (typically twice) where we invite guest speakers to present on issues that are relevant to our area.
The subscription fee is £2 per annum per household and is due from the 1st January for each membership year (not from your date of joining).
For many years your subscription has been collected by your local Road Steward, knocking on doors, and collecting cash. With the general reduction in the use of cash, we also offer an online subscriptions payment option (see below). This uses a service called Square. We hope this will be easier for members and for our Road Stewards. We can also accept payment via BACS (see below for details).
However, where we have Road Stewards who are available to collect cash payments, this method of payment will continue to be an option.
